Finding Kansas: Living and Decoding the Enigma of Asperger's Syndrome

Finding Kansas is a memoir like no other, written by an unlikely author who at first never dreamed he would find even one reader. When he was diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome at age 20, Aaron Likens began to collect his thoughts and experiences on paper-the highs, the lows, the challenges, and the unexpected joys. What he found was hope -- not only for himself, but also for others with Asperger's. Now a sought-after speaker and blogger, he is passionate about sharing his insights into this often misunderstood condition.

Aaron has another passion, too: the world of auto racing. A successful flag man at racing events across the country, Aaron calls racing his Kansas-a place where he feels safe, confident, and normal. For others on the autism spectrum, Kansas might be trains, history, or the weather. It is here where, like Aaron, they find freedom, and the possibility for growth and change

quoteAaron shares his journey of discovering why he thinks, feels, and behaves the way he does. It gave me great insight into what someone with High Performing Autism (as well as other places along the Spectrum) lives with each day. It helps me understand my grandson's behavior better and equips me with knowledge that helps build a healthy relationship with him.
